Hey guys,

I am looking to join a VA but I want some added realism. Are there any VA's that assign flights that you guys know of? I don't see the fun of a VA if I choose my own routes and fly whenever wherever. Thanks.

Chris/MEM

Most VAs will assign you a number of flights each month and allow you to choose however many you like yourself on top of that.

I am a staff member (well sorta) over at Jetstream Airlines. I think we are pretty realistic, I used to run my own VA, and lets say it was too realistic, so people stray away from it and go over to thise type of VA.

Sorry that im not exactly fluent about our operations, im currently working on a new Regional airlines. Anywho check out the site for more info. Hope i helped in any way shape or form  Smile

Check out Meridian Airlines. They have a great level of realism.

Jetstream is a decent enough airline.... flight schedules are extremely unrealistic though... not even departure and arrival times. Just a bit big for me.

Well we are an independant airline that will hopefully operate for Jetstream Connection and Eastern Virtual. Our Main hub is to be PIT, with another pilot base in STL. Our fleet (still changing alot) consists of the Jetstream 31, Embraer EMB-120, DeHavilland Dash-7, and the BAe-146. We will operate in the Mid-Atlantic/Midwest region feeder services. We dont currently have a Website but plan to have one up shortly. Any more info needed, email me at N365PA@yahoo.com

You may be interested in Delta Virtual Airlines as well. We are organized in aircraft programs, i.e., the MD80 program or the 757/767 program, as opposed to hubs. I am the 737 chief pilot, in charge of the 737 program. We don't formally assign flights to pilots, however there are many assignments to choose from. We have a wide selection of aircraft in our fleet library along with panels that have been designed by some of our members. Check us out at http://dva.sce.net.

Well I can suggest the SN Virtual Airlines Group (http://www.svagroup.org/), based on the SN Brussels Airlines and the former Sabena Airlines.

You don't have to bother about PIREPs, the logger program does it for you.
Realism level is very high, every pilot gets assignments, apart from them he's allowed to select some other flights of his choose.
A training department is also available.

Just take a look and see yourselves  Smile

If you want to emulate a realworld airline, get permission from the real airline first.
If you don't, they're likely to send their lawyers after you and shut you down.

Many will allow it, IF you have a good business plan and website for them to look at to back up your request, and of course don't go public until you have permission (ask help privately instead of in forums and newsgroups, or at least don't mention the airline and website unless in private).

If you want a good VA that assigns flights, I also reccommend Meridian (link above), but I can't post a topic about VA's without a shameless plug for mine, Jacksonville Connection Airlines. We are opening within a few weeks with a fleet of B1900D, ATR-42-300, CRJ-200, 737-200 and A320. We have one hub at Jacksonville, and focus cities at Orlando & New Orleans. We are also a division of Jetstream Airlines and a member of the Assent Alliance. http://jca.flyjetstream.com
